Bull Run Distillery Has Moved in Next Door!

Owner Lee Medoff started as a brewer at McMenamins and co-founded House Spirits before starting Bull Run Distillery. Lee is the founder and head distiller of Bull Run Distillery in Portland, Oregon and has opened a tasting room (The Carlton Post) next door to Cuvée in Carlton, Oregon.

He started House Spirits Distillery in 2004, where […]

May 29, 2018 – Moroccan Lamb


The Moroccan Lamb stew was very good if a little spicy. My wife had the duck breast special which was very good.

The Surprise du Jour

A Winterborne flashback from Gilbert’s Portland Restaurant over 10 years ago.
Review by David Sarasohn

The strange thing, of course, is that Alsace has no sea coast.

And hardly any border with Thailand.

But two years after taking over the Winterborne restaurant, Alsatian Gilbert Henri has put his own impressive mark on one of Portland’s seafood specialists – and his mark extends so spicy Thai prawns. Now, he has overhauled not only the menu but the dining room as well, giving it a warm, friendly feeling.

The menu is even friendlier.

Henri has kept many of the specialties that for years have drawn maritime munchers to […]

February 27, 2018 – Crab Juniper


We are longtime diners at Cuvee and appreciate Chef Gilbert Henry’s attention to a truly delightful dining experience each time we visit. We have made the trip from Portland to Carlton every winter for many years for one dish: Crab Juniper. It is a seasonal menu item only during Dungeness crab season, usually off the menu around April 1. A blend of exotically seasoned basmati rice, delicate white fish, Dungeness crab, pears, and cream sauce. Other standard consistent menu dishes are equally as good, our friends like the Boeuf Bourguignon. The Prix Fixe menu is $35 for three courses, we […]

Where Sasha Went

(A Customer’s Experience)

There are a lot of really great restaurants in the Yamhill/Willamette/Tualatin Valley area thanks in part to our robust wine industry. Up until recently, I had focused most of my time dining at restaurants in the Portland area, there are so many great places there, you could go out every night and never run out. Having recently moved out of the area has given me the excuse to branch out a bit and boy was I ever happy to have given that chance after enjoying an unforgettable meal at Cuvee in Carlton, Oregon.

The restaurant resides on the main street of Carlton, […]
